students, who have joined us to go on an exploration of religion. but what a journey it is. [ music ] [male voice:] so be it. [crowd:] so be it. [male voice:] tonight - [crowd:] tonight - [dr. simons:] this is armageddon, the field of armageddon. this is definitely not your father's oldsmobile. we're at the western wall, the last remaining wall of the second temple. we're at the san francisco zen center. it was the site of illinois greatest religious drama - the exodus of the mormons. this is the spot where jesus reputedly cried for jerusalem.

of religion, identity and relationship, and we'll be looking at that. i wanted to go to a roll-in, though, that we didn't get which is one of the more interesting ones we have at glide memorial methodist church out in san francisco. and this is, in a way, i think a little synchronicity here. maybe it's good we didn't get it in the last class because it's a good way to prompt some of the questions you might have about some of those key class themes we went over in our interview with cecil williams. now, this was quite a shoot. it's a fantastic church out in san francisco, and reverend williams said some amazing things about religion on this. but for the crew, what made the day, actually, it was my birthday - i went to church on my birthday when we did this shoot, and it was chaos. i mean, thousands of people around, nobody knew where we were supposed to go, we're sitting down with all our equipment like some rock stars on a battle of the bands, hanging around there, just waiting for stuff to happen. and all of a sudden, this movie star walks in - what's her name? anybody know her? tall? se

and the religion on which is based. the opposition will have an opportunity in another election happening within a matter of months. the demonstrators are making it clear they are not satisfied with the way the country is transforming. they are not convinced the government is acting in their interests. at the same time, they cannot deny there has been an ongoing democratic process in which the bulk of the people who have voted have voted for the government in power. those opposed will have an opportunity and if you most about the polls again and try and get the government they want in power. >> thank you so much for updating us on the protest. let's bring in a few more pictures and sights and sounds from tahrir square. that is the nerve center of the revolution that overthrew the former dictator. it is different now. egyptian society has had quite a few democratic protests. some are protests in the new government formed after the revolution. an airplane carrying japanese survivors and bodies of some killed last week returned to tokyo. the aircraft was greeted with a solemn ceremony. the prime mi

, regardless of culture, country, gender, race, or even religion, certain mathematical principles remain true. for example, 100 can always be reduced to its basic building blocks of 2's and 5's no matter what language it is that we speak every day. mathematics is indeed a language common to all of us on planet earth, and the most fundamental letters of its alphabet are called "the primes." these numbers have the very unique quality of being divisible by only themselves and one. they can't be factored any further, and as a result, they're often called the "atoms of arithmetic." prime numbers are so fundamental and mysterious that they've intrigued human mathematicians for thousands of years. are they so fundamental that other intelligent beings in the universe might know about them, too? in the 1960s, seti suggested that if there are other intelligent beings out there, they might share the language of mathematics with us. seti relied on the idea that math is so fundamental to how we describe the physical universe that other beings might see the universe through the same lens. and if we shared
